@corevi: Just rename ki cool guy wrestling juice or something.

Dan doesn't follow laws. Especially ones about not slapping people.

He is behaving like a mercenary. A monk has a certain code to them.

This is fantastic. Great post OP.

Brad and Dan should be working together in battle. Dan grabs them and Brad stabs them in the back.

@artisanbreads: I get your point with Dan wanting to play a dickish heel, but if he's gonna dish it out he has to learn to take it to, which he clearly was unable to do given his response to what Brad did. Brad robbing Dan was just as annoying as Dan demanding a larger share of gold, btw. If they can't screw with each other and keep it all in good fun (and it seems less than half the people playing are interested in that to begin with...) then the whole show is going to be a trainwreck and probably won't last past the next episode.

I get that but we are just starting and Dan was trying to inject some life into the show. Also, he needs to establish his character early. Are people really worried he's going to do this ever time? He's just establishing a character.

Brad's response was fine too. Just do your rolls and stop wasting all this time talking around things or trying to dissuade Dan. There are rules that can easily be applied.

Maybe it's the lack of V-Bomb, but this DnD campain has been super flat and boring compared to the Pathfinder one. Everything is super low key and no-one seems to be into the role-playing aspect of it. A lot of it is just flipping through books and being confused.

I don't think I'll watch anymore unless I hear good things from other people.

This is why I think it's funny people are hating on Dan. He is the only one besides Danny being entertaining and doing anything with a character. Of course he's being a dick, he's roleplaying Ric Flair, usually a dickish heel.

I'm not watching this to see them navigate combat scenarios to the T of the rules. Make it fun. Rorie is shutting down Dan being fun just like he seemed to do with Vinny.

To be fair they've only done like 2 fights, and one was practice. Its hard to turn the fights into anything but a numbers game. Rorie should illustrate the action a bit more. This is where being a storyteller really comes into play. You have to make the numbers and dice interesting. If you're just rolling, saying you hit/miss, and then knocking figures over there's no interesting aspect at all unless you really enjoy strategic board games. It also makes me wish that they had opened up with some roleplaying in a town or something rather than just going straight to the road and a fight. When they rest they should really try to role play with eachother too. No one is just going to sit there silent the entire rest period. (well, maybe)

I very much agree with this post. At least Dan was having a character at all. I get that it was ultimately tedious. I hope they situations are more interesting. We saw a practice goblin fight and then... another goblin fight.

But really, for a not stupid link, check this sauce: HP

Apparently pretty similar.

Contemplated waiting up until 3 AM for this but I'll just watch it tomorrow when I wake up. Day off.

Glad to have you back.

Hope to close my secret fear that they play the original MGS3 camera.

Ah okay. They really could have been way clearer about how to use them. Thanks Sterling!
